How to speed up X over SSH on a slow network connection?
I've installed firefox on CentOS 5.6 and I'm using X11 SSH to remotely login to view the browser.
Firefox browser does run, but its VERY slow. I type a key on the keyboard and maybe 5 seconds delay it shows up.
Are there any special configuration requirements when trying to do this I should be aware of?
#ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org from Mac (Snow Leopard) xterm (X11) to remotely login to server.
If there's a better alternative than
ssh -Y, such as using VNC or something else, would be interested to know.
